Unknown Primate of Southeast Asia.
Etymology: Possibly a misspelling of the Thai (Tai) words tua yai, "big thing" or "big monkey thing."
Physical description: Like an orangutan, but larger than a gibbon. Dark-red hair. Behavior: Can stand on two legs. Distribution: Southern Myanmar; Thailand. Significant sightings: In the 1880s, a man named Davison saw a dark-red primate standing erect in southern Myanmar. Around the same time, an army captain named Bingham acquired a dead Tua yeua; he preserved the skeleton, but it has since been lost. Possible explanations:
(1) The dark-brown Stump-tailed macaque (Macaca arctoides) is known in the area and has a bare, red face and forehead and only a vestigial tail. It usually travels in troops and is quadrupedal.
(2) An unknown species of monkey similar to the Ren-XiOng of China.
(3) A Wildman of the Chinese Ye-Ren variety.
